Let's Walk and Talk with a Doctor Series

Let’s Walk and Talk with a Doctor (LWTD) is a walking series created by CAHA, through its Healthy Lifestyles Committee, that combines the expertise of local physicians and the social support of walking groups to encourage walking. Each of the LWTD events lasts approximately an hour. The event incorporates, among other things, a short motivational talk by the mentor physician and a 30-minute walk with the mentor physician. During this time, the participants will have an opportunity to interact with the physician and ask healthy lifestyle related questions.

CAHA provides connectivity and pathways of communication that enable all of us to offer services that enhance the health and well-being of the people of the tri-county region."

"[CAHA brings] organizations together and bring[s] opportunities for developing joint programs, services, educational endeavors, and the promotion of healthy lifestyles. CAHA has been the leader in the region for healthy lifestyles."
